La Cava was a musical adaptation of the novel Florinda by Dana Broccoli that ran from June 8 to July 22, 2000 at Victoria Palace Theatre, and transferred to the Piccadilly Theatre where it ran from Aug. 21, 2000 to Feb. 3, 2001. It was the story of La Cava, or “the Christian whore,” the daughter of an eighth century Spanish general who incites war when she accuses the Spanish king of raping her. Music by Laurence (Larry) O’Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde) and Stephen Keeling, lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and John Claflin, book by Dana Broccoli, directed by Steven Dexter. The original cast included Oliver Tobias (Hair, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Roderic, Julie-Alanah Brighten (Oliver!, Beauty and the Beast) as Florinda, Paul Keating as Agon, Marilyn Cutts as Queen Exliona and David Bardsley as Julian Espatorias. The play was written by Richard Greenberg and directed by Robin Lefevre, with a set by Tom Piper, lighting by David Plater, costumes by Lorna Marshall and music by Phillip Dupuy. It was originally presented as part of the American Imports Season at London's Donmar Warehouse where it previewed 1 March, opened 2 March 1999 and closed 13 March 1999. Due to popular demand the play - with its original cast - returned to the Donmar over Christmas/New Year 1999/2000 period.
